StudierendenWERK BERLIN

Transparent heating and affordable housing

StudierendenWERK Berlin installed the Edge system in its properties, and with it, sensors to monitor the flow and return temperature of the heating system.

StudierendenWERK is a state-run non-profit organization for student affairs in Germany. The StudierendenWERK Berlin is the student union responsible for 20 universities and the Charité in Berlin and looks after around 170 000 students.

The organization is responsible for supporting all Berlin students' social, economic, and cultural interests. Including securing affordable housing.

The system continuously communicates the temperature profile of each heating circuit and the amount of energy used in the Edge portal. Within Edge, you can then see a visualization of the data. Kiona's energy expert constantly analyses the collected data, which helps ensure the heating system's functioning in the best possible way.

Compared to conventional work schemes, requiring janitors to make regular visual inspections of the heating equipment, this method creates an almost real-time chain of reporting on any functional variations of the heating system.

The energy management system Edge automatically uses weather forecasts for all connected buildings. This has resulted in annual energy savings of around 11,8% – important numbers to continue offering affordable housing in the future.
